Starting the Holiday Season Right Wtih a Review From MICHAEL!

Hey, all-you-stuffed-full-turkey-guys out there, I hope you had a great Thanksgiving. We certainly did at our Tomas stronghold. This year we did what we usually do--eat lots of turkey and dressing and cranberry sauce and then press 250-pound weights, runn 10K's up steep mountains, and wrestle alligators. Yeah, we really decided to take it easy this year!

OK, enough goofiness. The holiday season is upon us and I can't think of a better way to start us off than with a review from our good friend MICHAEL, King of Books and Time Travel:

by Margaret Peterson Haddix
Note: In order to understand this book, you will have to have read the other two books in The Missing series prior to Sabotaged.
Jonah and Katherine are at it again, this time helping Andrea, who is really Virginia Dare. But when Andrea loses the Elucidator, they have no contact with JB. What's worse, they're also working against a mysterious being who is known as Second. Trying to find Andrea's tracer is no easy task, especially with two tracer boys who have yet to be filled. Who is Second? Who belongs in the tracer boys? Will the three-some ever find Andrea's tracer, and, more importantly, get back to the present? Find out in Sabotaged. I think this book was really well written. I expected it to be rushed, considering it came out so soon after Into the Gauntlet. But I was pleasantly surprised. Haddix explores even more depths of time travel and the limits of tracers. If you like time travel in the least, get a hold of this book!

Thanks, Michael! I read the first book in this series and liked it a lot. (It's called Found--see my review here) This one sounds really good. What's that you say, guys? You want to know what an Elucidator is? Or a tracer? You're just going to have get these books and find out!
